Our CSR Commitment

We are passionate about charity support. It is important to us as individuals, as well as in our working lives, that we make practical and financial contributions to support our local community.

In 2014 our G+Et Fundraising Team formed working to deliver an effective CSR policy, encouraging activities internally and organising events with our chosen charities. We support charities in many different ways; through fundraising as well as offering “hands on” support. Our varied involvement gives us the opportunity to give something back to our community, whilst at the same time raising awareness of their invaluable work and also getting a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction as individuals and as a firm.

We welcome opportunities to minimise the environmental impact of our business where possible, encouraging green living through, recycling, and car sharing and cycling to work. To help inspire participation the G+Et Fundraising Team strive to deliver a variety of different fundraising opportunities, the Partners also frequently double the amount raised by making an additional company contribution. Working closely as a firm and with each of our charities we hope to make a difference to our local community.

Our chosen charities

Choosing charities to work with is extremely hard and we try to involve the whole firm, inviting people to put forward charities they would like us to support. The G+Et Fundraising Team then decide on two charities that we will support financially and volunteer our time to.

Our 2020/2021 Charities

Their dedicated work centres around the rivers Ouse and Foss in York, with combined patrols by boat and foot every weekend and during high-risk times.
